Serial Vendor Reports

Serial reports are posted using the expected issues list so that the information is readily available to both staff and patrons. If this is a new order with no receipts, you will have to add a component to the order before posting the report or claim response. If the publication pattern is not clear and you must guess at the correct pattern to attach, use a Pop Up note to warn the next person to use the record to check the pattern.

To post reports to a particular issue or issues:

  • 1. Call up the appropriate record in Serials Check-in
  • 2. Select the item from the pattern queue
  • 3. Determine whether the issue should be removed from the expected issues list. (issue is out of print, will not be published, etc). If so, do a dummy or psuedo-receipt:
